Pints in the Pines


Jul 19, 2019

This event occurs every 3 week(s) on Friday.


Pints in the Pines at Texas State Railroad kicks off in June with samples of Texas-brewed beers aboard a historic train as it travels the Piney Woods of the Lone Star State. 

This event includes a variety of local ales complemented by zesty beer snacks during the outbound train journey. Frothy favorites ranging from light, summery Kolsch and wheat-rich Hefeweizen to high-octane lagers and IPAs, from coppery-red Scotch ales to dark stouts and chocolate porters, these craft beers may have German roots but all are produced in Texas breweries.

Texas State Railroad’s very own version of “Oktoberfest” includes a souvenir tasting glass for each participant and dinner during the stopover in Rusk. The return excursion to Palestine allows ample time for all craft beer lovers to savor a full serving of their favorite brew, comparing notes and sharing stories with friends and loved ones.

Anyone consuming alcohol aboard Texas State Railroad must be 21 years or older.

Pints in the Pines takes place on board the train as it travels between Palestine and Rusk, and back, in select cars. This optional event is offered in the first-class VIP car during Romance on the Rails Friday Night Events.
